Dear membership and UTSC community,
On the morning of Wednesday, February 1st, the Elections and Referenda Committee (ERC) was informed of discriminatory vandalism written on an executive candidate’s poster for the 2017/2018 SCSU Spring Elections. After being taken down that same morning, members of the UTSC community notified Campus Security of the incident, who have since been in communication with the candidate to ensure their comfort and safety throughout the remainder of the Elections. Within the following 24 hours, all executive candidates were notified via e-mail and in-person (at the Elections Forum) that discriminatory behaviour will not, any under circumstances, be tolerated by ERC. The Chief Returning Officer (CRO) has also ruled that any candidate found to be involved with anti-black vandalism or other forms of hate speech will be immediately disqualified from the Elections.
The ruling made by the CRO is directly in line with the Scarborough Campus Student Unions’ declaration of collective responsibility to ensure that any form of discrimination are not tolerated, as indicated in the Equity Statement. The Committee expresses our regret to any candidate who has had to deal with discrimination throughout their campaign, and offer our ongoing diligence in ensuring the electoral process is undergone in the fairest way possible.
The Elections and Referenda Committee
